18 December 2015 : McDermott Takes Royals Job Again
Championship side Reading have reappointed Brian McDermott as their first team manager. The former Glovers player and assistant manager has been given a two-and-a-half year contract that allows him to return to the club who sacked him in March 2013 whilst they were in the Premier League. McDermott went on to manage Leeds United but has spent his more recent time working for Arsenal as a scout - something that he hinted was likely to be his long term career path, but it seems the lure of returning to his most successful club as a manager has persuaded him to do a u-turn.

Reading are currently 13th in the Championship table and have struggled to regain the form that was established under McDermott under his first spell that took them to the 2011-12 Championship title. He had been their Chief Scout before he was given the Royals job, and after a caretaker management spell in December 2009 proved successful, he was given the reins on a permanent basis to huge success, with his 45 percent win ratio being the second best record of any Reading manager.

McDermott had been on the bookies odds lists for the vacant Yeovil Town first team manager's job, but in reality it was probably going to need a job like the one at the Madejski Stadium to take him back into management again, having been the club's Chief Scout for nine years prior to becoming their manager. Former AFC Wimbledon manager Terry Burton has agreed to become his assistant.
